ABSTRACT
The author explains why the bus analogy of leadership expressed by Jim Collins in his book "Good to Great" is not applicable to schools. He asserts that schools are not corporations and they exist to serve the students rather than to generate profits. He also compares a good school leader to a good coach and suggests that school leader should focus on getting the maximum from those who are already in his/her team instead of trying to "get the right people on the bus" as Collins exhorts.
